Governor Nyesom Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that the Amnesty granted by the Imo State Governor to cultists who killed 23 persons in Omoku will have no impact in Rivers State. Speaking during a bills signing ceremony at the Government House Port Harcourt on Tuesday, Governor Wike said the wanted cultists who are kingpins of the Don Wanny gang will be brought to justice.He declared that the N20million placed on their heads still stands. He said that the security agencies will be empowered to bring the criminals to account for their crimes. He said that the action of Governor Rochas Okorocha is a proof of the intelligence available to the Rivers State Government that the APC planned to grant Amnesty to wanted cultists for political reasons.

The governor berated the APC and her officials for politicizing security to the disadvantage of the rest of the country. He said: “Just yesterday, the Governor of Imo State granted amnesty to the cultists we declared wanted. These are cultists of the Don Wanny gang who killed 23 persons on New Year Day. “These are cultists who have been killing security agents. That amnesty offered by Governor Okorocha cannot cover Rivers State.

These criminal cultists are still wanted for their crimes against Rivers State and her people”. He stated that it is wrong to introduce politics into security affairs because nobody knows what the outcome will be in future. “There is no need playing politics with the security of lives and property.

Before Governor Rochas Okorocha granted amnesty to those who killed our people, he did not deem it fit to call me. “They should always weigh the implications of these actions to the security of the region. Whether you are in PDP or APC, there is no need to politicise security ” Governor Wike said. The Rivers State Governor said despite the obvious political sabotage against the security infrastructure of the state, the state government will continue to work towards improved security in the state.
